SYHPANZ promotes the development of the youth health workforce and services for young people.

We’re unique in that we connect with many within the youth health workforce and health sector, including partnering with the Ministry of Health and with different community and international organisations. Most importantly is that we connect and kōrero regularly with those that we hope will benefit the most – our youth, Aotearoa’s rangatahi.

SYHPANZ is fortunate to be in a vital position to hear the voices of these rangatahi directly and to then to feed that through the work, and projects we are a part of.
